Missouri Digestive Health Center (surgical)


The Missouri Digestive Health Center provides a comprehensive and multi-disciplinary approach to digestive health. Our minimally invasive gastrointestinal surgeons use the most advanced minimally invasive techniques to treat all types of gastrointestinal and other general surgery-related illnesses. There are many advantages to this approach, including less pain, faster recovery and shorter hospital stays, as well as a significantly reduced risk of infection and recurrence. Although our surgeons perform minimally invasive techniques whenever possible, they also are very experienced in performing traditional (open) surgery.
